    How to claim roofing work injury compensation


    Whilst most of us try to avoid working at height whenever we can, there is one job where you will spend most of your day working at height. Being employed as a roofer doesn’t have to be a dangerous job, provided your employer takes steps to keep you safe at work and minimise your risk of being involved in an accident. Should the worst happen and you’re injured in an accident at work, you’ll be glad to know that claiming roofing work injury compensation is pretty simple. Let Accident Advice Helpline’s team of expert advisors offer you confidential advice that could help you decide whether to make a claim – there’s no obligation to proceed.

    Falls from height could be fatal

    Falls from height are the leading cause of workplace fatalities in the UK, which means that roofers working at height need to be aware of personal safety. It’s up to your employer to ensure you’re safe whilst carrying out your job, which means they should ensure risk assessments are completed before projects start. They should also provide you with safety equipment such as harnesses, guard rails and roof light covers or guards before work begins on a roof, and ensure you’ve been trained to carry out work safely.

    A fall from height could leave you with life-changing injuries including:

    • Spinal and back injuries which could leave you paralysed
    • Serious head injuries including brain injury
    • Broken bones or crush injuries, if objects land on you after your fall

    Even more minor injuries such as a broken leg or arm could mean months off work, and that means loss of earnings.
